Crashing alder

I heard a very familiar crash and felt the thud today; only I hadn't heard a chainsaw. I went first to check the neighbor and while going towards the other neighbor I noticed that the loss was in fact mine.

It took out another small tree I think and some large branches but it missed any structures so everything is OK. It uprooted in the soft soil - my hillside is also hosting an always changing creek so it is soggy to begin with.

I don't get too upset about losing the alders; although this was one of my older and larger ones.
